METITO, the international water, wastewater treatment and desalination experts, have won a (US $1 million) contract to install a specialized water treatment plant for a Liquid Natural Gas Plant at Idku in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria.

The contract will be undertaken on behalf of Bechtel to implement the plant that will deliver high quality demineralized water for use by the plant owner the Behera Natural Gas Liquification Company. METITO is already working with Bechtel on other high profile projects in Egypt including the massive Port Ghalib leisure development in the south of the country on the Red Sea coast.

The scope of work for the Alexandria project includes the design, supply and supervision of installation of a demineralization plant using a reverse osmosis system followed by the latest electro-deionization technology to produce high quality ultra pure water for industrial use. The scope also includes provision of antifoam and hypochlorite injection systems. METITO will further design, manufacture and supply a sewage treatment plant for the same site.

Reverse osmosis technology is used by METITO on projects all over the world to provide clean water that can be used for a wide range of purposes. At Alexandria, the company will further treat the water using electro-deionization to enhance the purity of the water to very high levels that can be used for specialized industrial purposes. Electro-deionization is a new state of the art technology that uses electricity for continuous regeneration thus reducing the handling of hazardous chemicals and their subsequent neutralization. The plant will generate up to 52,800 gallons of demineralised water per day.

METITO Egypt Limited Managing Director, Mr. Karim Madwar, said: “ As a world leader in the application of Reverse Osmosis technology we are very proud to be using this technique combined with the latest deionization technology to create the purity of water required at a plant of this nature.

“We have extensive experience in this sector around the world and have worked a great deal with companies in the petrochemicals and oil exploration sectors. A project of this nature requires highly specialized systems and equipment to meet the highest international environmental standards – standards that are fully met by all METITO projects.”
